Formerly House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation

About Aruma

Welcome to Aruma! Once House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation – Aruma is the disability service provider who puts You. First.

Welcome to Aruma!

We might have a new name, but we’re not the new kids on the block. You once knew us as House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation – two great organisations, with over 100 years of combined experience, who came together in 2018.

Yes, we’re a disability service provider, but we’re also so much more.

We’re the helper, mentor and coach. And the trusted partner of around 5000 people with a disability throughout the east coast of Australia.

Aruma is here for the new age, the new world of disability support – the NDIS world.

Aruma puts you, our customers, first.

We never use a one-size-fits-all approach. You know how to live your best life – we’re here to support you to do just that.

Our focus is always fully on you.

You. First.

The literal meaning of Aruma

Aruma has its roots in languages and cultures from all over the world.

It means a happy place, to plough the land, being real and true, and the calm time between sunset and sunrise – when the body and soul renews for a new day.

Aruma also has U – our customers – at the very centre. Literally.

But more importantly, Aruma is what we make it.

Aruma raises the bar higher. Aruma is a human rights warrior. Aruma is bold. Aruma is brave.

Our Purpose

Our Purpose is why we exist. It’s what brings us joy and what will keep us going both now and into the future.
